Artweeks is an artists' organisation which provides opportunities for Oxfordshire artists and designer-makers with a flagship event in May, a festival of open studios and pop-up exhibitions across the county, and a Christmas Season. Anyone can take part if they live or work in Oxfordshire or are a member of an established Oxfordshire based art group, society or guild. If you would like to exhibit, you need to register as an Artweeks member, find a venue for your exhibition and sign up to exhibit either as a solo artist or as part of a group exhibition using the on-line registration system. All members are expected to exhibit as part of the May festival.

Many Artweeks members who exhibit as part of the May festival also hold or participate in other shows or may runs workshops thoughout the year. Details of these should be entered in an individual's artist profile on this website.
